{Top Ten Tuesday} Books to Eventually, Possibly, Maybe Add to My Bookshelf

Posted August 27, 2019 by Leah in Memes & Features, Top 10 Tuesday / 6 Comments

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

The final Top Ten of August is all about the books we’ ve read that we’d like to add to our personal libraries. Because I like to spice things up, I’m also featuring some books I’m actually wondering if I liked enough to want to buy. Whether these were found at the library, read as an ARC, or loaned from friends and family, here are the titles I would like to add, am debating about adding, and thinking about adding to my shelf.


Forever, or a Long, Long Time by Caela Carter

Source: library

I loved this book! So many beautiful familial ties in a moving story.

Will I get it? YES!The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Source: library

I don’t know what it is about The Silent Patient that keeps pulling me back to it. I’ve mentioned it before, but logic leaps (and they are major logic leaps) and coincidences abound. The reveal was a surprise. It was a decent read. But when I’m at the bookstore, I always find myself walking by it and looking.

Will I get it? I honestly don’t know.

(EDIT: Upon posting this, I saw the book at Barnes and Noble’s Book Haul sale. After debating with myself for about one second, I bought it. *sigh*)The Diviners by Libba Bray

Source: library

I really don’t know why I had no interest in reading this book before. I have been missing out on creepy historical fiction.

Will I add it? Yes, but ONLY if the original hardcover is reissued. *fingers crossed* See my rant about the cover changes here.

The Modern Faerie Tales by Holly Black

Source: library

I’m actually surprised I don’t own this series yet. No reason, I just don’t. The publisher has recently bundled all the books together into one volume, so there it is, everyone. Excuses are over.

Will I add it? YES!The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan

Source: library

This book managed to be both unnerving and beautiful. I’ve never read anything like it and I liked it a lot.

Will I add it? Yes

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Source: library

I listened to the audiobook of this and, I admit, it took me a while to really get in to the plot, but once I did, I was hooked.

Will I add it? Somewhere down the line, yes.

The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker

Source: library

Ah, this book. Steeped in history and myth, this is one story I treasured. So why is it not on my shelf? I still don’t know.

Will I add it? Yes, eventually.Wilder Girls by Rory Power

Source: ARC

Wilder Girls, while not without its flaws, was just my kind of dark, twisty story that made me flip through pages at high speed.

Will I add it? Yes, eventually.

  1. I had to get Wilder Girls because of that cover alone. I am going to be reading it soon. I’m all for weird and dark. The Tithe bind-up is so pretty. I recently did a read of all three and it was an interesting journey to say the least LOL I did have fun reading them though.

  2. Same here with the Holly Black series. I’ve been meaning to read those for ages, yet I don’t own any of them. I need to get those. and Wilder Girls I have to read- I’ve heard it’s really good!
